Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 2911: Becky Hammon Part II - Blushing & a High Sincerity Quotient (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

This is the second post regarding Becky Hammon who was hired on Tuesday as the first female, full-time, salaried, assistant coach in the NBA by the San Antonio Spurs.

Although this video and the photos captured below are of lower resolution, one can easily see Ms. Hammon blushing. Not all blushing occurs in the presence of a smile - there are other emotions associated with blushing (can you name them?). And yet when blushing does occur in the presence of a smile - the smile is 99.9% of the time a sincere smile. Said another way, blushing almost never occurs in the presence of a feigned smile - although sometimes the sincere smile may be partially suppressed.

Moreover, when a person blushes frequently - it is a signal of a high sincerity quotient.

The two images below were captured during the 5:09 and 5:10 segments of the above video just after Becky references her father.
